On a vacation to York PA, visit one of the PA attractions located in the area on a fun vacation getaway. This is one of our favorite areas for a fun day trip, a romantic weekend getaway, or a week long vacation with family and friends.
Enjoy seeing a shoe-shaped house, watching how snacks are made or how a motorcycle is put together. We really loved the shoe-shaped house!
This area is close to Lancaster and Gettysburg, so history buffs, outlet shopping lovers, and antique and boutique lovers will find this area of the state bursting with things to do.
Utz snacks are popular in Pennsylvania so you can take the whole family to the plant for a tour. We always come out of the tour with lots of yummy snacks! It’s hard to choose our favorites but the snack mix, sour cream and onion chips, and the bbq chips are some snacks you’ll want to check out.
The house shaped like a shoe is awesome! We actually saw this house featured on a television show. It’s very unique, and we love finding unique attractions on our travels through the state.
There’s some neat history regarding this house.
